San Antonio, Texas, is big, even for a state where everything is bigger. Spread over 465 sq. miles, the city boasts a population of 1.3 million residents and the distinction of being second only to Houston in terms of size and seventh in the country in terms of population. As an important military center - Fort Sam Houston and Lackland Air Force Base are nearby - San Antonio also has a strong military population. With its long history, diverse population, strong sporting culture and variety of tourist attractions, San Antonio has grown to be one of the brightest lights in the Lone Star State.

Outdoor ActivitiesLike the rest of Texas, San Antonio has a strong outdoor culture. When Texas' scorching summer sun starts heating up, locals like to cool off at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark or the Splashtown Waterpark. Schlitterbahn is considered by many to be one of the best waterparks in the world and boasts seventeen slides and three full miles of tube rides. Splashdown, on the other hand, is an awesome alternative that takes up a whopping 20 acres and has one of the largest wave pools in the state. For something more quiet, you can go fishing on Lake Braunig, which is just a few miles outside the city.
